Public consultation on draft BEREC Common Position on Mobile Infrastructure Sharing

21 January 2019

In June 2018, BEREC adopted a report on infrastructure sharing which depicts a picture of different regulation and legal frameworks applicable in European countries, of the existing sharing arrangements, of the benefits and challenges related to such arrangements and of possible evolutions with regards to 5G.

BEREC expended its work on identifying common positions on the subject. The common position consists of:

  1. a background section which describes the applicable legal framework and the benefits and drawbacks related to sharing agreements ;
  2. a common position section which provides:
    1. common definitions for some types of sharing agreement;
    2. the main objectives to be pursued when considering network sharing agreements;
    3. the parameters to consider when assessing network sharing agreements;
  1. an indicative analysis of different types of network sharing, according to the objectives and parameters.

The response to the public consultation intends to serve as inputs for the finalization of a BEREC common position on mobile infrastructure sharing.
